What You’ll Learn
Start your career early while saving a year of tuition through the Life Sciences, B.S./Physician Assistant Studies, M.S., which awards a Bachelor of Science in Life Sciences and a Master of Physician Assistant Studies in just six years.
You’ll spend three years studying how living organisms function, survive, adapt, and evolve, and working alongside professors on active research projects in areas including biochemistry, physics, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, and pharmacology.
Then, you may apply to transition into the Physician Assistant Studies, M.S. program for the remaining three years, working alongside our highly-skilled faculty and building a strong foundation in science, medicine, research, and transcultural patient care. You’ll benefit from a number of cutting-edge on-site facilities, including the Institute for Clinical Competence with robotic simulation models and well-trained standardized patients, as well as a state-of-the-art anatomy lab.
You’ll also have opportunities for service-learning initiatives both domestically and abroad; past students have traveled to Ghana, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Nicaragua, and El Salvador.
